Did this backwaters trip in January 2014. The scenery was wonderful, but the boat was dreadful. We booked and paid for their best 'luxury' boat and ended up on one of their oldest and poorest boats. We were taken by taxi upriver to some remote place where there was only one boat waiting and had to scramble along the top... More

I wouldn't recommend Coco Houseboat. We specifically booked an A/C houseboat because we knew how hot it would be. Not only did the A/C never turn on (we were told over and over again it would start in ten minutes), but the fan barely worked either. It was 37C and with no windows to open, it was absolutely sweltering. I... More

We booked coco houseboats online with no issues. The service from our 2 man crew was excellent, particularly from our cook who provided a tasty and plentiful lunch and dinner, and a constant supply of really good tea. Service was also always with a smile. The experience was nice but was let down by the cleanliness of the boat. The... More

I am not sure why this has got terrible reviews. But Coco houseboat was cheap and worth every penny. It was the highlight of my stay in Kerala. The boat was fairly clean and went on with no mechanical issues. Our guide was great, brought us in and out of the waters and stopped at nearby market, town houses and... More

Lovely trip, really enjoyable. Cabin small but comfortable, clean, ensuite OK. AC. Organisation efficient, crew friendly and helpful. Excellent food and drink included. Some newer boats had mosquito nets which would have been good to keep out the swarms of insects from the paddy fields where we camped, attracted by the lights. An overnight stay was good to see the... More

I can only say that It's just an average place to stay. But yes, the STAFF were really well mannered. The food was above average but the need to show their concern on Cleanliness and water quality. The food was above average.

Good staff behavior, decent food. Bad cleanliness. They need to improve on the cleanliness part a lot. I had read bad reviews earlier too and now my experience was the same. The staff behavior was good and food provided was decent.

The Air-conditioning in the houseboat didn't work till 10pm and it was highly uncomfortable without AC at such tropical climates. The Coco houseboats told they would serve fresh breakfast, lunch and dinner. They never told they're going to server a stale dinner. (2 days old chapatis which made my wife sick!) Horrible dinner experience. Lunch was fresh but very limited... More
